This chapter examines the role of the American Philosophical Society (APS) in the expedition of Lewis and Clark. It shows that the APS was the main sponsor of the expedition, and that it also organized and published Lewis and Clark's ethnographic, geographic, and other scientific findings. The APS library is where the various specimens and records of the expedition are currently held, and where the editors of the Journals have always worked. The chapter also presents details of the activities of an institution that continues to serve as an intellectual center for scholars and students of the expedition.
